Now I know not all of us get thinspired by the same images. Some of us like thin delicate beauties like Vlada or ballet dancers, others like curvy-skinny like (some) VS models. Some prefer "real girl" thinspo or fitspo.
But have you ever seen something tagged as thinspo and just thought "What the fuck?".
I was just looking through the thinspo tag of tumblr as I often do, and I noticed some bizarre thinspo - people really aspire to this?
Mutant/bad photoshop thinspo:

Bizarrely muscular and giant boobs thinspo:

oh god..thank you for making this thread. the pictures i see on the thinspo & 'models' tag are horrendous.


THESE ARE NOT MODELS



as a general rule, never tag your own photos 'thinpo' or 'model'. you are fifteen and half naked with your friend doing duck faces. stahp.

oh I know a girl in real life who thinks she is a model, too! :lol:
She always pays for her shoots though. (well, her mum does.)





She stopped being friends with me because I was skinnier :nopity:

Oh come on, she's trying so hard with her learnings from the Tyra Banks School of Modeling:
Odd angles ALWAYS look edgy, doing a broken-doll pose makes you look skinny, and last, but not least - SMIZE like you mean it! SMIZE! :hahano: :lol::lol::lol::lol:

She's not smising right (It's at this point where Tyra would say "you don't go like this, you go like this" and demonstrate the smise)


A girl I know always put her "modelling" photos up on facebook (you're not a model if you just pay people to take photos of you), and a couple of them were shot by this "Melbourne Girls" photographer, so I decided to check them out. Gold. One of the following pictures is of her but I won't say which one, just in case ;)

Dirt, faecal matter or chocolate? You decide:


When in doubt, wink, smile and pout. Actually, let's just power-pout intstead:


Nope:


I'm not sure if this makes me want to vomit or whether I want a print of it:


This is like if you were surprising your boyfriend by sneaking in his room and lying there in sexy lingerie but then his mum walked in:

Just doing some ironing, you know:


Just bad:
